“New leadership perspective – delivering success in a disrupted & dynamic world”

“Chris came highly recommended to us as a speaker on leadership, a critical issue for retailers in this period of unprecedented change. He more than delivered on this by fully engaging with our delegates. His closing keynote was outstanding in pulling together all the strands from the Congress and setting out clearly some takeaway points that were extremely relevant, thought-provoking and helpful to all of the retail leaders in the audience.”

He presented a powerful business case backed up with proven data and followed up with practical ideas for action that deliver return on investment, critical for credibility with this audience. The feedback was excellent and we hope to work with Chris again in the future.”

“Integrity driven leadership in dynamic high pressure environments”

“Chris, I enjoyed an incredibly inspiring and rewarding ‘leading with integrity’ Masterclass with you at the UK Defence Academy, which I continue to use as inspiration for leading my own high performing teams at sea. As it happens, tomorrow I am using it as inspiration to conduct a workshop with a group of about 10 officers and senior NCOs. We are deployed on operations on the other side of the world in the Asia Pacific on a 10 month deployment, far from home and on strategic tasking – leading and inspiring people could not be more important.”

“Chris in a very simple and straightforward way explained to us why this makes sense and is simple. Chris translates this in a very engaging way and from my own role Chris has given me a few things to consider, I’m going away thinking I am going to have to up my game. Very valuable morning. Thanks”
